Microglo Microdermabrasion Kit, The Secret To Younger Looking Skin

Microdermabrasion, The Secret To Younger Looking Skin By Barbies Beauty Bits

Want to turn back time and have younger looking skin? Then you need to continue reading. If you follow my blog regularly, you will see numerous posts on exfoliating. When it comes to anti-aging, exfoliation is one of the most effective ways to promote youthful skin.

You see as we age our cellular turnover slows down, meaning that our body is slower to shed dead skin cells and produce new ones. This buildup of dead skin cells can have a negative impact on our skin leaving it looking dry and dull, or worse this accumulation can result in excess oil production and clogged pores, which could lead to problematic skin.

Additionally, this build of dead, dull skin can highlight any imperfections on your complexion, and sometimes can create false wrinkles and no one wants that. Furthermore, if you are not removing your dead skin cells, it will create a barrier for your skincare products. So those expensive serums and creams that you’re spending all that money on can’t get to the fresh new skin which is hidden below this barrier of dead skin cells.

While they are numerous ways to exfoliate, today I am going to be sharing with you, Micoroglo Microdermabrasion, The Secret To Younger Looking Skin!

Review on mircroglo microdermabrasion by Barbies Beauty Bits

Microdermabrasion At Home

Microdermabrasion is one of today’s most popular nonsurgical anti-aging treatments and is available in dermatologist offices, spas and with at home devices. This non-surgical procedure mechanically exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells, while simultaneously sucking up those dead skin cells, oil and other particles that may be trapped in your pores. This process has many benefits, with the number one key of helping to speed up the process of shedding old skin and making room for new skin to emerge.

Some of you may have wanted to have this procedure done, but are not sure whether to have the actual treatment performed in a medical office or to try one of those devices that are sold for in-home use which that can offer many similar benefits, with significant savings.  If you are considering the latter, this blog post is for you!

Why? Well, let's start with the costs. The cost for each treatment for microdermabrasion at Aesthetic Clinics roughly cost $100-$300 (per treatment) with a total number of about 6-8 treatments, lasting anywhere from 20-40 minutes! This can add up and become very costly, as it is not just a one and done procedure! The treatments even need to be repeated later down the line, which is why some opt for an at-home system, like one from Microglo.

Microglo Microdermabrasion Kit
For this post I have partnered up with Microglo, using their Microdermabrasion kit. Microglo is a convenient and cost-effective at home treatment device that removes dead skin cells from the surface of the outer layer of your skin. By doing this, it allows for the growth of new cells to be stimulated, hence rejuvenating your skin. Similar to those at an aesthetics office, this procedure can leave your skin looking softer, brighter and much more. 
Microglo Microdermabrasion Kit Review By Barbies Beauty Bits

How Does The Microglo Microdermabrasion System Work?
The system comes with 5 customizable heads, for sensitive to rough skin. There is even a head just for your blackheads and another for your feet and body. Keep in mind, that this is not an overnight success sort of treatment. It takes about 12 treatments (no more than 1 treatment a week to reach optimal results), after that, it is recommended to use the microglo once a month.

This microdermabrasion machine not only buffs away your dead skin cells in just 5 minutes, but it also polishes and refines the skin's texture using a diamond-encrusted tip or fine crystals.

Furthermore, this device has an added calibrated suction, and when the tip touches the skin, a vacuum is created. This suction triggers the body’s essential healing process, which boosts the production of collagen and elastin, leaving your skin firm and radiant. Collagen and elastin are crucial to anti-aging and younger looking skin.  That’s because they both work together to strengthen the skin’s structure and improve its ability to stretch and bounce back like it did in your younger years. So any boost of that I am all about!

Other benefits are...
  • Increase hydration
  • Aids in cellular turn over
  • Helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize and unclog pores
  • Aid in reducing the appearance of age spots and other sun damage
  • Even out skin tone & texture
  • Reduce the appearance of pore size
  • Stimulate blood flow to help improve the skin's elasticity
  • Supports the body’s natural detoxification process
  • Aid in the penetration of skincare products by up to 20%
  • Convenient, do a treatment in the comfort of your own home on your own time

Bonus… Get 20% Off
If all of the benefits above are not enough, Microglo was kind enough to offer all of my readers a 20% discount. Just click here and use my discount code: BARBIESBEAUTYBITS at checkout.

As you can see Microdermabrasion can be a wonderful thing when it comes to anti-aging. However, you want to be careful when using a device like this. While at home kits are a more gentle approach, they don’t offer the same dramatic results in a short period compared to those done in a professional environment. But, consistency beats quality with an at-home device, as it allows you to be more regular with the treatments, which can produce the best results over time and this is why I recommend them.

While gorgeous skin is what most seek, this device is not a toy, as you can damage your skin and possibly cause scabbing if you do not do it correctly, which is why I made sure to watch the how-to video before using. And you should do the same.

Lastly, this is not something I would recommend if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, widespread acne, and fragile or broken capillaries.  In cases like this seek medical advice first!

Collagen Benefits For The Skin And The Rest Of Your Body

Collagen Benefits For The Skin And The Rest Of Your Body By Barbies Beauty Bits And Nutribear Collagen

It’s a smoothie kind of day for me as I am enjoying my breakfast smoothie with some Nutribear Collagen, it is BEARy good, and Teddy BEAR approved.

This collagen supplement is so easy to add to your lifestyle no matter how busy you are and thank goodness as adding a collagen supplement is so important, especially for those in our forties.

That is right, collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the body and is essential to your health. Collagen benefits for the skin and the rest of the body are many. But to be the bear-er of bad news, it starts to slow down with age!

What Are The Benefits Of Collagen By Barbies Beauty Bits And Nutribear Collagen

What Are The Benefits Of Collagen

By now, I am sure that you’ve seen all over the net and media all about collagen, it is the buzzword in beauty and skincare, which is probably why you can find it in a lot of beauty products.

Not only is collagen essential when it comes to your skin, but it is also important for other things within your body like blood, cartilage, tendons, bones, joints and more.

While I did mention above adding a collagen supplement is important, especially to those in their forties, the fact is after the age of 25 collagen production slows down at the rate of 1.5% per year! That’s about 25% by the time you are in your forties! These decreased levels can lead to organ issues, joint and ligament pain, and an increased danger of cardiovascular problems. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the decrease in collagen production can cause premature aging with fine lines, loose skin, dryness, and overall saggy skin.

So what are we to do? Make sure to squeeze in some extra servings of collagen, with a daily collagen supplement, like the one from Nutribear! Not only is this a Granulated Hydrolyzed Collagen, but it un-bear-lievable at promoting skin elasticity helping with a more healthy, glowing, youthful appearance!

Best Collagen Supplements By Barbies Beauty Bits And Nutribear Collagen

What Is Collagen Protein Made From
Collagen supplements come in many forms. However, when collagen is hydrolyzed, it's broken down into smaller particles, that are easier to dissolve and are absorbed by the body better.

And while bovine, porcine, and chicken collagen are easier and cheaper to extract, the benefits of the fish collagen are in its efficiency and potency, which is why Nutirbear uses the best fish-derived collagen.

Fish collagen is basically the crème de la crème of collagens sourced from animals as it is superior bio-availability, thanks to it having the smallest particle size of other collagens,  which means it’s absorbed up to 1.5 times more efficiently into the bloodstream.

What Is Collagen Protein Made From By Barbies Beauty Bits

How To Use Collagen Powder
Nutribear only uses superior fish collagen, sourced from freshwater fish, which is excellent for those who are a Pescatarian as there are products out there that are sourced from beef or chicken.

The product is simple to use and can be mixed in your favorite smoothie or add it to your morning coffee. It also makes a great prework drink because it is also high in protein, simply add one scoop to your favorite prework drink , and enjoy the effortless health benefits!


A Special Bonus Plus 20% Off
Well hopefully, you have seen some of the many benefits of adding collagen to your diet. But one of the reasons I was impressed with Nutribears Hydrolyzed collagen is not only are they cruelty-free (the products are clinically tested, as well as consumer-tested on real live people, getting real live results), but that they also help to save endangered bears, by donating 5% of NutriBear collagen sales to bear conservation.

So, with each collagen product you buy, you are not only improving your health, but you are also directly helping save the life of an endangered bear. And don't forget about getting 20% Off by using code BARBIESBEAUTYBITS at checkout.

If you care about the lives of bears, then do like I did and join me to help save them from extinction!

The Many Benefits And Uses For CBD Oil

The Many Benefits And Uses For CBD Oil By Barbies Beauty Bits

More and more people are turning to CBD products as a treatment for a variety of medical conditions ranging from anxiety, depression, skin conditions, sleep disorders, chronic pain and more.

It wasn’t until my sister had a series of nonstop medical issues after her brain surgery (which leads to tons of medications) that we started to look for some safer alternatives for some the prescriptions she needed to take.  Seeing the results, she got from CBD, I decided to try them myself, and boy am I a major fan!

If you have not seen any of my previous articles on CBD oil, the bottom line, you will not get stoned, which is why I love it. THC is evil to me! But most companies who sell CBD products remove this evil demon, (as THC is illegal in most states) so there are no worries of getting stoned.

Is CBD legal By Barbies Beauty Bits

Is CBD Oil Legal

Yes, CBD oil is legal as CBD is not marijuana. CBD is a cannabinoid that is extracted from cannabis. Like any other plant species, cannabis comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors. One group of cannabis strains is called hemp. Hemp is also known as industrial hemp or agricultural hemp, and unlike the strains referred to as marijuana, hemp is used for building materials, textiles, and food.

And there just happens to be strains of hemp that are high in CBD and have negligible amounts of THC. CBD-rich hemp IS DIFFERENT! Unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effect. Which means that CBD DOES NOT change a person's state of mind when they use it — hence allowing the consumer to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high, which is why it is 100% legal to purchase without a prescription in all 50 states.

One of the brands that we have been using is Green Flower Botanicals, All Health - No High.  Their CBD products are sought out not just for the benefits they bring to humans but also by people looking to help their beloved fur babies, like me, so CBD is also great for animals.

Why I Love Green Flower Botanicals CBD Products
In addition to the many medical conditions that research has shown that CBD has the potential to help with, it is also great for skincare. And being the skincare lover that I am, you know I must implement it into my skincare routine.

Now before I get into the benefits that CBD has for the skin. I wanted to talk a bit about the brand as not all companies are the same. So, do your research.

From soil to oil, Green Flower Botanicals is committed to developing products that remain as close to their original form as possible. They start with using the highest quality hemp crops, that are rich in CBD. These cannabis plants are sustainably farmed at U.S. family farms and certified pesticide-free, which is essential when you are looking at putting these into your body.

Next, it is important when you are looking at a brand that sells CBD to make sure that they run a triple lab test.  This type of testing ensures that you are getting safe, pure CBD, that is certified pesticide-free and safe from any potentially dangerous metal content and THC, as who the heck wants that in their body or on their skin, NOT ME!

Why CBD Is Amazing For The Skin
CBD has many wellness benefits, but it has some incredible benefits, when it is used topically, especially for the skin. CBD is proliferating in beauty products, and it’s poised to take your skin-care routine to the next level, especially in these chilly winter months.

Due to the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabinoids, CBD products are great at helping with irritation that comes with inflamed, dry winter skin.  Furthermore, CBD is high in Omega-3 fatty acids and being a woman in her 40’s I need this to help improve the skins cellular structure.

green flower CBD infused skin therapy lotion review by Barbies Beauty Bits

One product I have been using this winter is Green Flower Botanicals skin therapy lotion. This lotion is designed to improve the health and beauty of the skin. It is carefully crafted from the full spectrum cannabidiol extract and is a premium blend of all-natural vitamins and botanicals, including Frankincense, tangerine, lavender, chamomile, peppermint, and Aloe Vera.

So not only does it smell wonderful it is also rich with skin nourishing vitamins such as vitamin A, C, and E, which are perfect for promoting the growth of healthy skin. Helping with not only dryness but also supporting the skin's elasticity and balancing out your skin tone.

Green Flower Botanicals ACDC Strain CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Review By Barbies Beauty Bits

ACDC Strain CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
In addition to the lotion, I also tried their ACDC Strain.  This whole-plant, full-spectrum extract has all the benefits of cannabidiol with the added boost of 9 very powerful terpenes (essential oils). The ACDC strain is most famously known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. However, the benefits of this popular extract reach well beyond pain and inflammation. Terpenes also have an abundance of beneficial medical qualities.

Terpenes Found In The ACDC Strain
For a full description of Green Flower Botanical CBD oil terpenes, you can go here. But to summarize quickly, it contains…
  • Myrcene – 50% (Effects: Analgesic, Antioxidant, Sedative)
  • Alpha-Pinene –27% (Effects Anti-bacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Memory Enhancer just to name a few)
  • Beta-Pinene – 8% (Effects: Expectorant, Bronchodilator, Anti-inflammatory)
  • Limonene – 4% (Effects: Anti-anxiety, Anti-inflammatory, Antidepressant)
  • Eucalyptol –3% (Effects: Anti-Asthma, Anti-bacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Antioxidant)
  • Valencene – <1% (Effects: Anti-inflammatory)
  • Humulene – <1% (Effects: Anti-bacterial, Anti-inflammatory)
  • Camphene –<1% (Effects: Hypolipidemic – lipid-lowering, Anti-bacterial, Antifungal)
Green Flower Botanicals CBD oil review by Barbies Beauty Bits

How Much CBD Oil Should I Use
This company is excellent at supplying a detailed insert with your purchase, that outlines how to use this, so please read it. One thing I found beneficial is establishing a baseline dosage based on weight. Also, most people decide to try CBD because of a condition they want to treat. So, it is important to remember that your endocannabinoid system runs throughout the entire body at a sub-cellular level and is the response for maintaining homeostasis with the bodies systems.

cbd dosage by barbies beauty bits

Therefore, because CBD is a whole body, multi-benefit compound, it can potentially help with various effects as I listed above.  However, this article, I, nor this product or company are meant to make any medical claims in place of a qualified physician and their advice, so please consult with your doctor prior.

Save 20% At Green Flower Botanical
Yes, a discount! Not only did I want to be able to share the many potential benefits of CBD, but I also want to give you a chance to try it yourself, which is why Green Flower Botanical was kind enough to offer all my readers a discount. Simply use the code BARBIESBEAUTYBITS at checkout to get your 20% Off Your First Order of Green Flower CBD Strains (Site-Wide). And if that wasn't good enough, they also have a 30 day try & see money-back guarantee!

Lastly, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them below and don’t forget to share this post so others can benefit from the use of CBD. Until next time!

The Superfood Qualities Of Mushrooms And Why You Should Add Them To Your Diet

The Superfood Qualities Of Mushrooms And Why You Should Add Them To Your Diet By Barbies Beauty Bits And Naked Nutrient

The term "superfood," depending on where you live has been around for a while. I see it everywhere in California, but locally I only see it at some of the Mom & Pop health food stores. But the wonderful thing is you can go online for these Superfoods, to places like Naked Nutrient, which makes it convenient.

For 2019, I decided to go back to a trainer friend of mine. While I can’t drive to workout with him any longer in person, he did put together an excellent plan for me, and one of them included adding some Superfoods to my daily diet. Now I know you are probably wondering what the Heck Is A Superfood?

Well to put it simply, the term Superfood refers to foods that offer maximum nutritional benefits with minimal calories, which is why they are great to add to other foods, especially a protein shake, smoothie, and soups. Not only do Superfoods have minimal calories, but the benefit is they are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and boy do I love me some antioxidants!

The Antioxidant Benefits Of Superfoods

Being a woman in her forties, I need as many rich antioxidants that I can get as they are amazing at helping to neutralize free radicals in our bodies. Free radicals can wreak havoc on the body especially the skin as they cause damage to the cellular structure.  This damage can speed up the skin's aging, by breaking down the skin’s collagen, which can lead to premature aging with sagging, wrinkled skin and who the heck wants that?

Antioxidant molecules found in superfoods, can decrease and in some cases reverse the effects of free radicals, which is one reason I am all about them! But it doesn’t stop there. Superfoods are great at basically supercharging your health, immunity boosting, and more!

6 Items Every Woman Should Carry In Her Gym Bag

6 Items Every Woman Should Carry In Her Gym Bag By Barbies Beauty Bits

You’ve finally decided to start going to the gym.  But is your gym bag ready? What do you wear? What do you bring with you? What to do for post-workout pain?

"Being prepared for the gym is important, like anything else in life you want to set yourself up for success, and having a correctly stocked gym bag is no different. And I’m here today to share 6 Things You Should Always Have In Your Gym Bag."

6 Items Every Woman Should Carry In Her Gym Bag

For this post, I have partnered up with Sanare Smart, a CBD product manufacturer who produces topical lotions, tinctures, pet products, soaps, sunscreen and more, all infused with CBD, terpenes, and essential oils to help with pain.

Treat Workout Pain With CBD Products
With the New Year comes some new fitness goals. And working out can leave your body with some aches and pains. But you want to make sure that you are prepared. So the first thing in my Gym Bag is CBD oil for pain.

I am a big fan of CBD oil and CBD creams, and Sanare Smart has quite a selection of products.

One group of cannabis strains is called hemp.

Until recently, the best-known compound and active ingredient in cannabis was THC. However, Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, and these compounds have entirely different effects.

The THC that is found in cannabis is what creates the mind-altering "high" when heat is applied to, and a person smokes or uses it in cooking. This is because the THC breaks down when it encounters the high heat.

CBD-rich hemp IS DIFFERENT! Unlike THC, it has no psychoactive effect. This means that CBD DOES NOT change a person's state of mind when they use it. Hence allowing the consumer to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high.

Workout Wear
Many people are unaware that workout wear is an essential part of the workout, and when you wear the wrong attire, discomfort, and irritation may occur, hampering the exercise’s progress.

While you don't need to spend a fortune on your clothes, it is essential to have something set aside for working out. With sweating and the movement from exercising, you want to make sure that the clothes you are wearing are going to let your skin breath and more importantly one made of wicking fabric to keep that sweat off of you.

Items available to add to your workout wardrobe include shirts, shorts, pants, tank shirts and shoes all made to fit comfortably and fashioned from material that allows free airflow. Keep in mind functional pieces are relevant here, it's not a fashion show!

Gym Bag essentials for her by Barbies Beauty Bits

Sweating is normal, but nobody wants to sit in your sweat or have it land on them.  The gym I go to does provide a cleaner and paper towels to wipe down the equipment, but it is also important to wipe down yourself!

Water Bottle
When you exercise, you lose water through sweat. This water needs to be replaced to help you maintain and get the best workout, so make sure that you pack your gym bag with some water!

Beauty Items
If you are coming straight from work, you want to make sure that you have packed some beauty essentials, see below:
  •     Deodorant
  •     Hair Tie
  •     Cleansing products to remove your makeup and prevent breakouts
  •     Hand Sanitizer
  •     While this isn't beauty, have an extra set of earplugs for your phone. (Music always gets me in the mood for a great workout)

Post Workout Nutrition
Protein is excellent to consume right after your workout as it helps your muscles to recover.  So make sure you pack a protein shake or a protein bar.

The Benefits Of Black Seed Oil For The Skin

The Benefits Of Black Seed Oil For The Skin By Barbies Beauty Bits

While the weather outside may be frightful, this doesn’t mean your skin needs to be as well. During these chilly winter months, our delicate skin can sure be affected by these blistering cold winds. So, this month I wanted to share with you some less expensive ways to have radiant skin, with my “Pantry To Pretty Skincare Series.” A DIY approach to skincare.

Dry, itchy skin affects a lot of us and can be most prevalent during this time of year when the humidity and temperature drop, making our skin particularly vulnerable to dryness, cracking and worse yet, aging us (yuk). That is why it is essential to take extra special care of the skin during the winter! Furthermore, skincare and makeup go hand in hand, and no one wants to apply makeup to their skin when it is dry and flaky, highlighting our imperfections.

Today’s Pantry To Pretty product is with Organic Black Seed Oil or Nigella Sativa. This plant native to Asia has been around dating back to ancient Egypt times. The Queen of the Nile herself, Cleopatra, is said to have slathered it on herself!

So, if you want to see the many Benefits of Black Seed Oil For The Skin, continue reading.

The Benefits Of Black Seed Oil For The Skin

Best Black Seed Oil
The oil of black seed has many benefits from antibacterial & antifungal properties to anti-inflammatory effects, balancing sebum production and is excellent at calming inflamed, itchy winter skin; even eczema and acne-prone complexions have benefited from this oil! It sounds like a wonderful oil doesn’t it?  Well, beauties it is, and one place I found that offers this oil in its purest form is Naked Nutrient.

Not compared to other Black Seed Oil, this brand oil is "VIRGIN, FIRST PRESSING" cold pressed oil. Which means that it is unrefined so that the oil will retain as many nutrients in its purest form, with no additives, solvents or alcohol added.  It is 100% pure and natural that is extracted from black cumin seeds and can be used topically as well and ingested.

Before I get into the many benefits that black seed oil has on the skin. Let’s take a gander at the nutrients found in black seed oil that contributes to beautiful skin.

The Nutrients Found In Black Seed Cumin Oil That Are Great For The Skin
Being a woman in her forties I am looking for products that have omega fatty acids, vitamin B & C, as well as some other antioxidants and black seed oil, has all of these!

Yep, you read right.  Until recently, I only looked used black seed oil for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.  It wasn’t until I discovered the many anti-aging benefits it had, thanks to an aesthetician friend of mine. She has great looking skin, and she shared with me that black seed oil has rich and powerful anti-oxidants like…
  • Omega-3 fatty acids that help to improve the skins cellular structure.
  • Vital Amino acids that are the building blocks of both peptides and proteins which have an essential role in skincare. Amino acids also maintain the skin's hydration and overall healthy appearance. Furthermore, it can help the skin to generate collagen and elastin!
  • Skin Nourishing Vitamins: Black seed is an excellent source of vitamins B and C. As well as Zinc, Calcium, and Potassium who would have thought?  All these combined are great at helping to promote the growth of healthy skin tissue, support the elasticity and tone of the skin, and can even help with minor acne flare-ups.

Why Go DIY With Your Skincare Routine?
The DIY approach to skincare has been something I have done forever! I got it from my mother and grandmother, who both have gorgeous skin. It's no secret that DIY can save you money, but when it comes to dry winter skin you want to stay away from products that have artificial fragrances and synthetics in them as these ingredients can cause your skin to become more irritated!  While they may smell pretty, they are not pretty for the skin!

What does black seed oil do for you By Barbies Beauty Bits

Black Seed Oil Skincare Recipes
Many have asked me how to take black seed oil? What is black seed oil good for? Well, black seed oil can be used in many ways, but today I am going to share with you my top 3 black seed oil skincare recipes.

For A Glowing Complexion
  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of black seed oil with a carrier oil.
  2. My two favorites carrier oils are Coconut and Olive Oil.
  3. Rub the face with this mixture and leave on for one hour.
  4. Or I prefer to leave it on overnight. However, you want to be careful not to get it in your eyes. Also, leaving it on overnight may be too strong, so test it first before applying to your face.
  5. Wash off with gentle foaming facial cleanser. Never use a body soap to wash it off, it dries the skin!

Zap A Zit
  • This one is easy. All you need is a Q-tip
  • Simply soak a clean Q-tip with black seed oil and dab it onto your pimples.
  • For those extra troubled areas, I combine it with organic honey.

A Facial Mask
I love me a facial mask, and this one takes the cake as it is combined with Turmeric.

Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. The plant’s intense healing power primarily comes from Curcumin, its main active ingredient.  Curcumin is packed with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory firepower that promotes an incredible range of healing benefits. Combine that with the Black Seed oil, and you have the remedy for younger-looking radiant skin, so check out the video here.

So, there you have it beauties, my first winter skincare Pantry to Pretty Bit.  Make sure to stay tuned for my others that will talk about Organic Black Maca and Organic Mushroom powder. Until next time!
